8:11 am
larger apartment buildings through project safe or something similar to that. if you were to get behind that and behind the chief so that the tennants can form building safety committees without fear of retaliation from unscrupulous landlords, it would be extremely helpful. people want to be safe including those who are in the criminal element. i have said before, when the criminal element start to feel unsafe, the rest of us don't stand a chance. they need to know the crime, because they have crimes perpetrated against them. what they can do to get that crime reported. because a lot of these people don't live in the best shelters, they don't live in door ways. they live in so-called supportive

housing, public housing. they need to know, we need to know what can be done. so if there is someway that the commission can come up with something to help us out that would be really really wonderful if you can agendaized, i don't like the word hearing. but agendaized and open sort of thing so people from the public can come and share with you what sorts of things we like to see happen. that would be very very helpful and would help make san francisco even more responsive and safer. that's it. >> thank you. is there any additional public comment? seeing none, public comment is closed. >> please call line item no.
